Collage Workshop with Lo Marie

13 13 people viewed this event.

This is a free introductory collage workshop to get to know the artist & explore mixed media. Cut & paste can go a long way, especially when you have a variety of materials to work with. Because there are endless possibilities 2 themes have been chosen to help direct your creative choices. Please free to bring any personal photos & other paper materials from home that you don’t mind cutting.

Theme | 2 Options:

• Self portrait – Instead of a traditional portrait – use colors, magazine images, text, photos, and a few special items from home to make a self portrait or rather a piece that feels represents who you are.

• Tell a story – Any story. Create a scene that reminds you of a memory,  a story someone else has told you before, a recollection of a dream, or even a reimagining of a want or fantasy.

Donations to cover costs & materials will be accepted by Artist day of.

About the Artist:
Lo Marie is an artist based in the Southside of Chicago. Over the past 5 years photography, painting, and mixed media have become her preferred mediums for expression. Currently she’s utilizing collage in order to explore the history of housing policy and low-income communities.
